The Obsessed - To Release New Album In March

Doom metal pioneers The Obsessed have finished recording their first album since 1994's The Church Within, tentatively entitled Sacred, and frontman Scott "Wino" Weinrich recently revealed in an interview that it will be released in March.

He states: "It's going to be March. I got to tell you: I'm a hundred percent really into this record. We did it with the old lineup and it sounds fantastic. It's one of the best-sounding records that I've ever been a part of. I can't wait. The cover looks fantastic. Relapse is behind us a hundred percent. They dig it. We dig it."

On what to expect from the new album, Wino said: "The new record is with the old lineup as a three-piece, so I start sweating when I think about bringing this [lineup] into the studio. We're itching to write. We know we need to strike when the iron is hot. I feel completely inspired and I think everyone is too. We have a couple of ideas in the can already. We were down jamming getting new ideas. I'm pretty sure we'll be in recording new stuff in January."
